WMD’s Performance Mixer provides 8 channels and is especially suitable for live performance. The module contains 12 audio inputs for its first 6 channels, 2 dedicated stereo channels, 2 mono aux sends with dual mono returns, stereo send/return, and an additional set of stereo mix ins. All this affords vast routing capabilities, bust compression options, and master EQ flavor.
Additionally, the Performance Mixer also contains a cue mix section so users can monitor their incoming signals prior to sending them to the master mix. There’s even a decimated cue mix knob that lets users preview the mix via headphones. The module also features 2 headphone outputs should users wish to collaborate with others or explore alternative routing options.
In this demo we show how the WMD MSCL compressor can be used on the master bus and as a side chain compressor. No compression or limiting was used other than the MSCL. The WMD Performance mixer is used to mix into the MSCL. The kick drum is from the Hexinverter BD9, Snare from Audio Damage Boomtschak, percussion from Audio Damage Neuron and noise from the SSF Quantum Rainbow 2 into the Make Noise Optomix. The bass is sequenced by the WMD Arpitecht and is two Intellijel Dixie II +s going into a AJH Minimod VCF and then a Hexinverter Galilean Moons for VCA and envelopes.
MSCL, from WMD, is a compact Stereo Compressor designed as a master compressor to help glue ones mix together. It is based off the DBX "Over Easy" style compressor, with attack and release knobs, output gain, and a master Compression knob which decreases threshold, increases gain and ratio with just one turn. Also included is a Limiter, which can be switched on to make the MSCL act as a peak limiter. A threshold switch can change the settings to function with signals with different volumes.
